66% Support Military Action Against Terrorists in Yemen, Somalia
Majorities See Multiple Motivations for Terrorist Attacks
UTICA, NY - Two-thirds of U.S. adults (66%) agree that the United States should take military action against terrorists in nations other than Afghanistan that harbor Al Qaeda, such as Yemen and Somalia.
The same Zogby Interactive survey found that majorities think resentment of Western power and influence, making Islam the world's dominant religion, and U.S. support for Israel play the most significant roles in motivating terrorist attacks against the U.S. When asked to choose which they believe to be the most important motivating factor, making Islam dominant led with a third of the responses, followed by a quarter who chose resentment of Western power and influence.
The poll of 2,003 adults was conducted from Jan. 15-18 and has a margin of error of +/- 2.2%.
